One Moviegoer With a Gun Could Have Prevented 70 Innocent People From Being Shot

In light of the incident at the Dark Knight premier early this morning, it’s worth noting that we as a law abiding society could have prevented the deaths of, at last count, 13 people and the injuries sustained by scores of others.

The fact of the matter is that an innocent citizen should not lose his rights because of the actions of a criminal. Someone who owns or wishes to own a gun for hunting, self-protection, target shooting or any other legal reason should not have to pay the price for the actions of some idiot. Blaming guns for crime is like blaming a spoon for making you fat or a match for arson. Let's ban all matches and spoons! -
